Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
4 ounces linguine, cooked al dente
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons butter
1-2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cloves fresh minced garlic 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (add more until sauce is desired consistency)

Place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat.

In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté chicken in butter or margarine until chicken is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add garlic; saute 1 to 2 minutes.

Add heavy cream, tomatoes, basil, salt, black pepper and heat through.

Add Parmesan cheese and cook until sauce reaches desired consistency. Pour over hot linguine and toss with Parmesan cheese.
